showing on cam - Social Networks Go Video





showing on cam - You may or may not be familiar with webcam social networks, or maybe you've assumed they are somewhat unsavory. But not surprisingly, there are a large numbers of camcorder communities on the market, and many of them are simply built to let people talk with others who have similar interests. While none of the webcam social networks is getting ready to out pace Facebook or Twitter, many of them have a significant following and offer hundreds, if not thousands, of non-public webcam feeds, and also webcam chats with actors, singers, and television personalities.



A webcam social networking is simply another way that individuals who are online can interact, whether with friends, family, or complete strangers. It should not be surprising that with the buzz of Skype, Google video chat, and Face Time, social support systems that allow for video interactions have grown in popularity. And somehow they still need this somewhat seedy reputation. Why could you want to watch strangers doing what they're doing? And what exactly are they doing which is so interesting?



If you take the time to do some on-line research into the different webcam communities, viewers most of what people are doing on their webcam feeds is fairly the opposite of interesting. The truth is, what draws people to watch the webcams of others is a little mysterious. Obviously, reality TV-like action are certain to get attention, but since most webcam feeds are uploaded instantly, the action can be very limited.



Perhaps oahu is the allure of the benign that attracts so many people to watch everyday activity that happens somewhere else. Maybe people are sick of watching inane drama. Perhaps we simply want to be reassured that if they live a basic, uneventful life, brimming with little mistakes and small types of forgiveness, we're normal, too.
